    Doug Ducey,
    I am an Arizona teacher of 44 years. I am thoroughly enjoying teaching the common core ELA standards in my reading classes. The students are loving the standards as well. Many students say…..”These make me think!!
    Since you say you will get rid of these standards, please give me the third grade literature AND information standards and tell me why our students should not be learning these? In other words, I want you to prove you know what these standards are. They came from the state governors, NOT the federal government, by the way.
    You stated you want a common sense approach to education. Could you please outline for me what standards will be taught and what test will be used to assess what is taught?
